Writing Quizzes & Trivia

Mahalo has strict standards for quality and presentation. Each guide should expect to have several pages scored each week. The scores will be accompanied by feedback, explaining any areas that were not in line with standards. In some cases, the feedback will ask the guide to update the page and resubmit it for review. All of the standards are outlined in detail on the page entitled How to Write a Mahalo Page. If you are looking for examples of a good page to use as an outline, a listing may be found on Mahalo Gold Standard Pages. QC scores are on a scale from 0-10, with 10 representing the perfect Mahalo page and 0 representing a blank Mahalo page. Here are some guidelines on how to interpret your scores:10: Perfect page. These will be very rare. 9 - 9. 5: Excellent page.
